We urge you to COME EARLY & CARPOOL! 
Carpool to share the gate fee. Carpool to save gas. Carpool to help fellow Sunsetter with rides! Once the main Stafford Lake parking lot is full we cannot park any more vehicles. Drivers and Riders, set up Carpools here:

Parking Lot Status: 
We will be updating the current status of the parking lot capacity at the top of this event page on the event day. Please check it before you head out to the Lake. It's very possible we will reach capacity at some point. If it show’s more then 90% full before you leave your origination then we recommend arranging a drop-off or you could be turned away.

Zero Waste:
We are making great efforts to reduce waste going to the landfill at our events. Marin has a goal to be zero waste by 2025. Let's help them out! Please use the compost and recycling bins in the park. Please refrain from using any disposable plastic items in your picnic.

Be Patient and Kind: 
Respect your fellow Sunseter… We will be doing our best getting everyone into the park efficiently. 

We have worked very hard to preserve the culture of this event. 
Please designate a SOBER driver. DO NOT DRINK & DRIVE!
